National Map Service

Recommended Posts

zPB5q02.png

So this is something @Orioni and I have been talking about this July, but I couldn't find a good moment to kickstart the project.

Well, now I've found it!

The National Map Service is just what it sounds like. You request a map, I do it. Please keep in mind that this is a pretty complex task and, believe me or not, I do have a real life aside from NS, so each map could take a few days/ weeks to make.
I only do maps for people who are on the map (makes sense, right?). If your nation will expand on the map after I have already done a map of your nation, I will update it, but it will have a lower priority than any other map jobs.

As an example of how those maps will look like here's mine. For those of you who know the maps I did before, you will notice that the colour pattern is different from my maps, that's because I adapted the pattern of our world map to make the whole thing more cohesive. If you prefer the older pattern, I can provide you with both patterns.

Patterns:

I don't like the dark grey in the first pattern, I have added it to compensate for the lack of a seventh overland colour, I might change that in the future.
My colour pattern was ripped straight out of my geography book. Nevertheless, I prefer Orioni's because it's the same as in the world map.

Comparison:

I hope that you like this idea, like the maps in general, etc. :) If you have any C&C feel free to post it here.

Greetings,

-SSI

Great idea dude, really glad you're doing this. Your contribution to the community is always top and this goes above and beyond. Thank you.

I can send some references for Prymont over Discord if you'd like?

@Prymontsure, but as far as I have thought about it I will be overlaying a zoomed in version of the world map onto my template. But sure, send me the stuff you want to have inculded in the map. The more details the better.

Although I assume that you want to expand in the future, but I'd be happy to do a map for you anyways.

Dare to make a city-state map?😎

I have no experience with road and/or city maps, but I'd gladly do a map for you.

Maybe one showing both you and Mantella.

City map can be complex. Fortunately, there are some nice generators that help you get a long way towards the finish line. /cc @Cristina

@Synturia As a fellow space nerd I recognised Olympus Mons instantly! However, I am afraid we cannot make it the size of RL France and 21km tall. :D We're discussing your nation on the Discord, would be cool if you'd hop on over.

I wouldn't necessarily call mine "beautiful". Was just a rough plotting to indicate major cities, ports and state boundaries.

Extra credit for adding a road system which I later realized would be useless on that map! :2thumbs:

Hey Thomas,

I'd just like to queue up behind Cristina and/or Synturia so I don't fall behind too much! No rush intended, I'm just saving a spot for reference :)

Dearest Map God,

In case this is still active and you find some time to work on maps, I'd like to ask for two simple maps (although I'm sure that what seems relatively simple to me will end up being an hell-spawn of labor). One simply being the outline of Variota (and preferably also Lukinagrad, as that'd remove any need of updating in the near future, just plant it down in one of those fun little boxes or something), blank in the middle (although, if possible, do include the locations of Grootwaterflakte and Ferrefaaierhafen). The other including the elevation, such as the world map has and preferably also including Lukinagrad and the locations of Grootwaterflakte and Ferrefaaierhafen.

I intend to use both maps as a base for things like the Variotan provinces and such (handy to have when the wiki is launched), so the only thing that's really important is that they're large images, like blow that sh*t up like an atom bomb. The larger they are, the easier it will be to use them (not to mention that it's generally easier to make images smaller without issues than making them bigger, cut bits out of large maps and what not). No rush or anything but I do need it in like an hour or so, maybe quicker if that's possible...

Yes, that was meant as a joke. I don't expect this to be done anytime soon so take your time, really.

@Variota Do you have a location for those other cities?

    • I think that's a wonderful idea and I am glad to see that you went ahead with the river delta options.
    • HA. Not as much briefed as in me spending a considerable amount of time going through the various areas of the forum and soaking up as much information as possible. Plus, I did read the friendly roleplaying guidelines lol. We'll connect over Discord in short order.
    • Thank you @Adaptus. I will give this another 48 hours for comments before moving ahead with the reorganisation. This task has been on my list for far too long, and I want to finally cross it off.
    • Astriedan's News Agency The ANA jingle plays as the ANA logo fades out to a presentator in front of images of various diplomats and salesmen shaking hands. "-Good morning, in the news today the recent announcements made by His Majesty the Emperor Syra Aïl III concerning the recent deal between @Sunset Sea Islands and @Astriedan to install the high tech surveillance system "Synapse" in our country. This continue His Majesty's work to make our country safer trough surveillance. While some human rights organizations have called the Synapse system an "obvious violation of privacy" and "a useless system", the legislator of the Imperial Internal Security Bureau said he was "very happy about this new system", claiming that it will "not leave a bit of privacy to any potential dangerous person. Crowd movement and movement patterns, medical and criminal databases about every astriedanian, and more, this new system will definitely change astriedanian surveillance. The Emperor did not, however, gave the price at which he bought the Synapse system.   In other news, the Imperial Army and the Imperial Guard has announced the deployment of the vehicles bought from @Iverica a few months ago. The price of the transaction was still not declared to the public but the Imperial Army Public Relations Office declared that "a modernization of the equipment was necessary".   Finally, the Noble Houses Eennso and Atria have announced that great change was to come. We still don't know what this change will be about but our best political analysts are currently trying to make predictions.   More infos on all these subjects this evening at 20pm. May your day be as joyous as Symis and glory to Astriedan." The ANA jingle plays again as the ANA logo appears again.
